Research & Scientific Programs

For scientists and lab technicians in any setting, there is the thrill of discovery and a sense of accomplishment if they can add to human knowledge. In a medical research setting, such as the Georgia Cancer Center, they have the additional satisfaction of knowing their work will ultimately reduce the burden of disease.

Several independent labs, centers and institutes engage faculty and students from across the university. Academic departments also sponsor numerous other research labs and programs. Cancer Center research is supported by numerous offices and programs both in Augusta University, state- and nation-wide.

Our Facilities

The five-story, 167,000-square-foot cancer research facility opened in 2006 at a cost of $54-million. It houses administrative offices, laboratories and special equipment for researchers, such as flow cytometry resources. It also provides meeting space for seminars and lectures, training sessions on sophisticated software used in research, and community-wide forums on cancer-related topics. Laboratories have an open floor plan to allow work areas to flow into each other, fitting the collaborative nature of research today.
